    I am trying to move a video to my vita because everytime I try to watch it on Youtube it just says something about an error, So I tried using the vitas content manager but it's not detecting my vita so I tried making a folder just called "videos" on ux0: and moved it there but I don't know how to play it now? opening it up just shows a bunch of text on screen please help.

    Having an issue I played my video but it's just a black screen? also the video is a colorfix video it's basically just a bunch of flashing colors i'm hoping it can possibly fix some stuck/dead pixels on my vita so I really need help getting this to work :(

    Is your vita an OLED?
    I had Galaxy NOTE 3 with similar issue (it also has OLED screen...actually (AM)OLED) and i never believed that can solve issue, but who knows, you can try it.

    Did the video worked for you, does it play?

    Maybe you can try MediaImporter to play videos through the very official Video Player on your Vita (instructions included on the github page). Not sure why it would work better than Media Center but at least it worked on my Vita OLED.

    I have a 2000 so I am pretty sure it's LCD.




    Which of these files do I download? I see a bunch of stuff here is this something I put on my vita? I don't see a VPK file?

    I'd just use the official Content Manager & QCMA to play your video on the Vita. I did that with bill wurtz's history of the entire world, i guess and it works perfectly.

    Have you tried reinstalling the driver? iirc you have to go into Zadig, click Options > List All Devices, go to the PS Vita, and install libusb.

    Sorry, check the "Releases" tab on github. I didn't give you a link to that exactly so you could read the readme.
    Here is a direct link to that tab if you want https://github.com/cnsldv/MediaImporter/releases

    https://gyazo.com/2ac22c520cf0714e1fb6e63d1ffd4062 Do I install "WCID driver" or just "install driver"?
